Inner City Youth Alive has been changing the lives of youth, one life at a time. It began in 1986, when Co-founder Kent Dueck and a friend decided to take action in making the inner city a brighter place by taking kids from Rossbrook House (an inner city drop-in) on wilderness camping trips in an old CN van. The van has now grown into a 20,000 square foot facility in the North End of Winnipeg on the corner of Aberdeen and Salter, offering the following programs and initiatives:
